Another Afternoon

Film, 2020

This black and white film attempts to depict the small moments of a student’s life in isolation over a period of time. He tries to find a way to connect with his family friends, as well as wrestle with occasional feelings of isolation and the social alienation that comes with being an international student. There isn’t much of a plot guiding the film, nor is the narrative necessarily contained within a constantly progressing storyline. The images of the film are accompanied with a short story told through text in differing intervals between one scene from the next. The story is meant to run parallel to the images on screen, utilised primarily as a counterpoint to the film.
